The warm welcome we received when we arrived started our holiday off so well. We were a group of four women who went up to Cumbria for a walking holiday. And we felt in the first half an hour of arriving that we had made the best of choices in staying at Bluebell Barn. It felt like home, and it is a very comfortable place to stay that we would strongly recommend to anyone.
It is also in a good location for exploring the local area. Some of our highlights were walking around Derwent Water and seeing snow on the top of the mountains, and then going back to Bluebell Barn and warming up by the lovely log fire.
Also one night, we went out to see the stars. Living in Surrey next to Gatwick, I had no idea it was possible to see that many stars with the naked eye. With so little light pollution it felt like we could see the whole universe!
All in all, it was a holiday to remember, and we were sad to leave. hopefully we can go back sometime soon
